Awesome Austin Chronicle Review for The Kindness of Strangers

The Austin Chronicle reviewed The Kindness of Strangers (our current mainstage show) and had a lot of great things to say about our Tennessee Williams inspired improv show!

“You could taste the distinctive flavors of [Tennessee] Williams.”

“Characters whose interactions and choices have a gravity all their own pulling us to them.”

“This improvised salute to Tennessee Williams conjures his South’s deeply rooted traditions and misfits with style”

The Kindness of Strangers runs Saturdays at 8pm through August 26! Click here to get your tickets!
